Dear List,
    I am in the process of highering drivers and have a few questions.
1. How much do you pay them?  When answering this question, please include 
where you live, since the cost of living varies.
2. For what types of things do you use them for?  Do you have to set up a 
specific schedule?
3. Most importantly, how do you interview someone for a driving position? 
What types of questions to you ask?

I have placed an add on Craigslist, has anyone else done such a thing?  How 
do you make sure you aren't getting a cereal killer?

I am living in a town that has no public transportation, or very little, and 
cabs are too expensive because everything is spread out.  So far my mom has 
been driving, but this is getting old really really quick.  Am I going about 
this the write way?  Any suggestions?

Jessica
